Nissan Maxima Failed External Seal on Engine Oil Cooler May Leak
The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.
I noticed my car leaking oil by the right wheel area. The dealership told me this problem was my oil cooler at a price of $271.00. This is the second time this problem has happen to me within a 2 years. - djdabow
Noticed oil leaking on driveway close to passenger-side wheel, had leak diagnosed/inspected by local repair shop. Was told it was the oil cooler gasket that needed to be replaced. Was quoted high price to replace a $5 part. Will be fixing it myself after ordering part and doing research on the problem. - Visitor
